Cayuga Community College is negotiating to use the Plaza of the Arts in Auburn for the college’s proposed culinary center.
CCC’s board of trustees unanimously gave the college approval to move forward with negotiations with The Plaza of the Arts in Auburn for the possible center at a trustees meeting Dec. 20. Dan Soules, of Soules & Dunn Development Group, which owns the plaza, said Friday negotiations involve determining how much space CCC would get and the accompanying costs.
A culinary center was a part of Auburn’s proposal for a $10 million grant for the state’s 2018 Downtown Revitalization Initiative. CCC was formerly looking at multiple spots for the center. CCC has requested $800,000, or 64-percent of the project, with a total $1.25 million preliminary estimate for the project, according to a presentation for Auburn’s Dec. 18 local planning committee meeting.
